I have decreased kidney function. I require anti-inflammatory RX strength drugs. Which is better choice for my kidneys? NSAIDS or Corticosteroids?
Loaded...: You need to discuss your current medication regimen with a Nephrologist (kidney specialist) or qualified Internist or Family Physician. The Lamictal may be causing aches and pains in and of itself. And it may also affect kidney function. I don't think I would recommend any intervention (NSAID, Corticosteroid) until your medical history is fully taken into account. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
If aspirin is anti-inflammatory, why doesn't it lower CRP blood levels? Or does it? What about other NSAIDS? Thx
One or the other: It`s unnecessary and not advisable. Oral NASAIDS get into most tissues-local sprays are local but with some small systemic absorption. Don`t do both. ...Read more

What is the strongest anti inflammatory cream for low back pain and other muscle pain in thighs and arms? I don't want to take a pill everyday.
Are there any natural supplements with anti-inflammatory properties but no bad side effects? If so, how do I go about choosing one that works/is safe?
No free lunch: There's no such thing as a free lunch in medicine. In other words, for any desired benefit from drug or surgery, there's always potential risk but it's not a guarantee of side effect either. OTOH, dietary supplements aren't required to warn you & thus tend to hype & mislead. Studies suggest benefit from turmeric, green tea, ginger, rosemary, cat's claw, devil's claw & willow bark (aspirin). Check ...Read more

Hi I have a hernia an Lower back pain iam on a muscle relaxer an an anti inflammatory but it doesn't help with my pain one bit ,?
Suggestions: There are some things you can do to improve your discomfort while you heal. Try the anti-inflammatory naprosyn (naproxen) if you're not taking it already since it's long-acting). I suggest also increasing your water intake a lot (improves blood flow to spasmed tissue), use a microwaveable heat sock to low back several times a day and avoid stretching, as that typically just recreates the mechanism of injury. ...Read more
Is aspirin an effective anti-inflammatory or should one use tylenol (acetaminophen) or Advil for a sprained knee?
You know your body: There is no one best medication for everybody. You should always stay within the recommended dosage on the packaging and discontinue it if you have side effects. Tylenol (acetaminophen) is not an anti-inflammatory, but it may control your pain. If your symptoms are not improving, you should be evaluated. All of those medications may have side effects with prolonged use. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Naproxen 500mg, mobic (meloxicam) 7.5mg, acroxia 90mg n celebrex 200mg. Which one doesn't cause anxiety n more effective as anti-inflammatory for joint/ muscle?
Personal Choice: Acroxia is not available in my country, so i can't answer there. For the others, different people have different results and what you end up loving your brother or sister might hate. There is no way to know in advance, just have to try and see! anxiety if very unusual with all of these. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Does a pain reliever cream wont give gastro problem unlike taking an oral NSAIDs? I have a very painful scoliosis and been taking NSAID for 2 years nw
NSAID cream effects: It depends on how much of the medication is absorbed into the blood and the base that the medication is in. It is possible to get as much NSAID into the blood with a cream as an oral NSAID. Then you could potentially have similar side effects. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Are all nsaids drugs forbidden when kidneys are damaged with chronic kidney disease, meaning that only corticoid might be given against inflammatory ?
It depends: I see that you have both polycystic kidney disease and an enthesopathy, the latter being an illness for which the nsaids are extremely valuable. I have little use for "cookbook medicine" ("people with ___ can't take ___"). Your physician will explain the risks and benefits (relief from pain, you must stay well-hydrated) to using nsaids in our situation. ...Read more

A Dixie cup with frozen ice and then peel off the outside covering and you can roll that on the inside of your foot is helpful as well. Continue daily stretching exercises wearing your orthotic. ...Read more
Yes quite a few : Ibuprofen (sold in the us as motrin, advil) and Naproxen (sold as aleve) are both anti-inflammatories lasting eight and twelve hours respectively. They are often referred to as nsaids or non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs. In addition, old fashioned Aspirin works the same way. Acetaminophen (or paracetamol), sold as tylenol (acetaminophen) is not an NSAID and works differently. Does nothing for inflammation. ...Read more
